Lily of the valley for Easter


I made loads of Easter cards for my charity sales (and for our own use) and they've all gone - so, that's a good result. It means that I took lots of pictures, but didn't get round to blogging them, which is why there are so many Easter cards appearing now!

Another one with the scalloped edge with a background from an offcut, a piece of card taken from a pack of Prima flower spacers, some Martha Steward lily of the valley stickers (they are raised, but that doesn't show here), a peel off cross and a stamped sentiment.
